Emergency Mozilla Downtime (AMO) – 08/14/2009, 10:15pm-12:15am PDT (0515 – 0715 08/14/2009 UTC)

(Apologies for the short notice. We generally want to stick to our normal advertised maintenance windows but sometimes technology works against us.)

We will have an emergency maintenance window tonight from 10:15pm to 12:15am PDT.

The following work will take place:

  • 10:15pm PDT (0515 UTC) addons.mozilla.org database replication re-sync. We’ll be taking down the master MySQL database server to restart slave replication after a catastrophic replication failure. Duration 2 hours.

As always, we aim to keep downtime to as little as possible, but unexpected complications can arise causing longer downtime periods than expected. All systems should be operational by the end of the maintenance window.

Feel free to comment directly if you see issues past the planned downtime.
